Peanut butter & Jelly (PBJ) Smoothie

img_20180416_194140_561-1744478744.jpgA natural power couple of good taste and popularity: peanut butter and jelly. Apparently, the average American will eat 1,500 PBJ sandwiches before graduating high school. But while the classic sandwich is a crowd pleaser, but not necessarily super healthy, this smoothie version ticks all the boxes. Loaded with vitamins, protein, healthy fat and fiber. This recipe makes 2 servings.

Ingredients

  • 1 ripe (or frozen) banana
  • 1.5 cups of frozen strawberries or raspberries (whatever floats your boat)
  • 2 generous tablespoons of creamy peanut butter
  • 2 cups of oat milk

Blend everything until smooth. This smoothie is cold and refreshing thanks to the frozen strawberries/raspberries and banana. Thereby, you can chill your drink without having to water it down by using ice cubes.

Banana hack: if you realize that your bananas are ripe but you might not be able to eat them all on time, peel them and store them in a container in your freezer. Thereby, you have a great ingredient for future smoothies ready at hand, which is thereby also serving as a natural chill factor.
